the need of them having a child, and needing financing is basically the reason why they are in front of us. they could operate -- that the previous owner could give them full financing for the last the project. an untenable situation. we should send a strong message but that is not acceptable. >> i agree with that, i don't know what we could do but we have a lot of units; as many as 20,000 units out of compliance. i wish i could figure out a way to get a handle of those. we don't know how many units we have to work with. as a policy consideration, i would love to have a hearing, and a conversation on this topic, to figure out how to encourage people to bring units to confirmity to what they were supposed to
12:31am
be. it is a challenge. this project sponsor had nothing to do with emerging this unit; this was merged 20 years ago. this project needs to be resolved. otherwise, the benefit to the city and a personal view and not approving this project is you probably have a building that sits vacant for many more years. if the person who has the building now can't afford to invest the money and create two units they won't find -- unless someone is independently wealthy. would rather have this family or have a vacant?
12:32am
we are not in a situation where we can do this. unfortunately that is the case here. >> commissioners, motion on the floor as to approve the project as proposed by the project sponsor. on that motion. (voting) motion passes, 5-2, commissioners moore and wu voting against. >> general public comment? i would like to close the meeting in memory of a gentleman named frank -- property owner at fisherman's
